Hole in the wall goodness!

Ok this place isn't much to look at. But food is excellent, fast and reasonable. I was disappointed they didn't serve beer but sweet tea hit the spot on 100 degree day. We had combo platters with ribs and pork and chicken and ordered piece of fish to try. We had leftovers for lunch. The sauce... read more

Decided to try Archibald & Woodrow's Barbeque while visiting Tuscaloosa with family. Our 6 adults and 2 teenagers shared 2 racks of ribs and 15 hot wings with sides of baked beans, cole slaw, fried okra (no fried green tomatoes available). Archibalds is very similar to the original Dreamland in many ways. The establishment is, of course, very modest. Service... More

Don't judge a book by its cover. The restaurant is small and not much to look at on the inside, but the food is great. We really enjoyed the tender pork and fried green tomatoes. The waitress was extremely nice too. I will definitely come back again when in Alabama.

This place is nothing fancy to look at but the food was awesome. The fried okra and the fried green tomatoes were outstanding! Also very reasonably prices. Defiantly worth the trip!

This is a great little place, go in and sit where you can. The staff will find you soon enough with a menu. The sweet tea is great and a must have if you visit. The BBQ is good and there is a great selection on the menu. Take-out is possible too if you plan on having a picnic down... More

Wife and I had dinner and the BBQ is good. I had ribs and she had pulled pork sandwich. Place is small and it was blazing hot outside so the AC was taxed. Service was friendly. Not sure I would return but I did enjoy it.

The BBQ was fantastic! Don't let the outside fool you...food was delicious and the staff were very nice! Wonderful vinegar based BBQ sauce! We cut the fried steak with a fork and the ribs were to die for!

I ate here because of a segment I used to see during college football games on ESPN where a guy named Todd would go to hole in the wall type places in different college towns to eat. This place was highly recommended. I got a barbeque sandwich which was lots of meat and sauce slathered between loaf bread. It was... More
